A fading belief
So i have been thinking about all of the dumb crap we as humans have at one point believed in. in doing this I would like to ask the theist out there, seeing how all of the following statements have been proven wrong how can you be so sure that your beliefs are accurate?
so let's start with the belief that the sun is god. dating back more then three thousand years people believed that the "sund god" was the lord of the universe. this is because the ancients could not explain the sun of how it effected the earth. Now we know that through nuclear fusion the sun exists and because of photosynthesis our planed is the way that it is. proving that the sun was not a god.
people believed that the sun revolved around the earth. This belief was so predominate that Giordiano Bruno was burned at the stake because he believed that every star was like the sun and very planet harbored life. Galileo was tried as a heretic because of his observations of the sky and supporting Copernican theory that the earth revolved around the sun. back in those days's the earth was the canter of the universe. Now we know that not only is the earth not the the center of the universe it is not the center of our galaxy cluster or our galaxy or our solar system. IT IS NOT THE CENTER OF ANYTHING!
So what i really want to know is if science can prove every other belief through out history wrong why is it so hard to believe that you are wrong? The belief in god is fading, and it is fading fast. It is already proven through the laws of physice that god can't change how the universe works. what more proof do you need?
